Posted by on

Conservation Halton held its 58th Inaugural Board meeting on Thursday, February 20. John Vice, citizen appointee from the City of Burlington, was acclaimed as Chair of the Board and Keith Bird, Regional and Town Councillor from Oakville, was acclaimed as Vice-Chair. Both will be in their fourth year in these roles.

Mr. Vice has been on the Conservation Halton Board for ten years, while Mr. Bird has been a board member for all but two years since 1974. During those two years, Mr. Bird was on the Conservation Halton Foundation Board.

“I would like to thank my colleagues on the Board for the nomination, and Conservation Halton staff for their efforts over the past year,” said Mr. Vice. “This is a very important year coming up as Conservation Halton will be developing the organization’s strategic plan for the next five years. The plan will set objectives and goals which will provide a roadmap for the Board and Staff.”

The chair and vice-chair are elected by members of the Conservation Halton Board of Directors for one-year terms at the annual Inaugural Meeting. They must be current members of the Conservation Halton Board of Directors and be nominated by their peers.
